Introduction

Biomechanics focuses on the mechanical structures and functions of biological systems, from a physical perspective. Biomechanical assessment usually involves static and dynamic examination and assessment of the body under weight bearing and non-weight bearing conditions.

At the bottom of this profile are brief details of a number of the experts that Expert Experts represents. Call our office to discuss your requirements and to obtain a recommendation that suits your needs and budget.
